New Haven, CT (WTNH)CT Style Host Natasha Lubczenko was happy to have a return visitor to the Channel 8 Studio, when Chef Attilio Marini, of Cast Iron Chef Chop House & Oyster Bar stopped by to talk about his New Haven restaurant and to make a fabulous steak sandwich you won’t want to miss. Watch it happen in this segment.

Chef Attilio explains that this was a recent addition to his restaurant menu, and it came from a customer request for a steak sandwich, which he didn’t really offer, over year ago. He thought about it, and came up with this tasty creation:

This delicious sandwich includes the following ingredients, sauteed in butter in cast iron skillets:

  • 8-9 oz. prime strip steak
  • Carmelized onions
  • Roasted jalepenos
  • Skillet toasted Italian Bread, crust trimmed

The sandwich is topped with Fontina cheese and served with broccoli rabe and potato chips.
